Manufactured Housing Advocacy Center
Policy research and advocacy are critical components of the I’M HOME strategy. We partner with the National Consumer Law Center to develop resources and provide technical assistance for advocates in the field. We also partner directly with and facilitate connections among groups on the ground such as advocates, legal aid organizations and AARP state offices. Our policy work recognizes that homeowners themselves are the critical voice for change, so we work with the National Manufactured Home Owners Association (NMHOA) to strengthen the infrastructure for national networking and advocacy by owners of manufactured homes. In addition to supporting and coordinating with state-level advocates, I’M HOME leads a coalition of national and local stakeholders to identify and educate policymakers about changes at the federal level that could improve the way the manufactured housing market functions for low-and moderate-income consumers.
Together with its partners, CFED developed the Manufactured Housing Advocacy Center to help advocates educate policymakers, allied organizations and the general public about how public policy can improve the lives and financial security of owners of manufactured housing. Homeowner advocates and their partners should also visit our For Homeowners section for additional resources.
